Suzanne Berne

Suzanne Berne is a writer of essays, novels, and short stories whose first novel, A Crime in the Neighborhood, won the 1999 Orange Prize for Fiction. Her work includes the novels The Ghost at the Table and A Perfect Arrangement, as well as the memoir Missing Lucile. She currently teaches creative writing at Boston College and is part of the MFA faculty at Rainier Writing Workshop. Berne serves as the fiction editor for the Harvard Review, and her short fiction and essays have appeared in publications including Ploughshares, Vogue, the New York Times Magazine, the Guardian, and the Quarterly. Berne’s latest novel is The Dogs of Littlefield, a bitingly satirical and compelling comedy of errors set in an idyllic Massachusetts suburb. The Guardian calls The Dogs of Littlefield  “an intriguing portrait of the kind of loneliness that can only exist in a crowd.”
